In my lifetime, coffee has been bad then good then bad then good again. I believe right now it's bad... and good. It's good for thwarting colon cancer, but it's bad for blood pressure.
Well, the American Heart Association has a new study and a new conclusion about exercise today.
Before you get all sweaty this weekend, Heart Association did a three-year study of nearly 5,000 men and women over the age of 40, who all wore fitness trackers.
The researchers discovered if you take a two-minute walk (two minutes and you do it 15 times a day), you'll live as long as the guy up the block who religiously sweats through a 30-minute walk each and every day.
Notice, they don't say you'll have the same endurance nor a heart that's as strong. Just that in the end, you'll live as long if you take two-minute walks 15 times a day.
Do the walk. Do the walk of life.
Park the car at the far end of the lot or bounce up and down the stairs a few times or walk to the mailbox. When the day is done, make sure it all totals up to 30 minutes.
You'll live longer. No Sweat. Just stay away from the coffee... I think.
